As the name suggests, Wood Green is a leafy residential area with many local parks and great outdoor spaces, but with an exciting high street, cosmopolitan population and gradual regeneration, it’s also an up-and-coming area that boasts that hard-to-find mix of old and new. Situated in the London Borough of Haringey in London, Wood Green’s N22 postcode attracts more and more professionals and first-time family buyers given its close proximity to central London. Characterised by Victorian and Edwardian Terraces, the area offers extremely good value for money when compared with neighbouring Harringay, Alexandra Palace or Crouch End.
Surrounded by parks and green spaces means families never have to look far for a great spot to relax, picnic and play. This includes Alexandra Palace, which sits right on Wood Green’s doorstep, with its expansive park, live sports and music shows, and breath-taking views of the Capital.
Wood Green High Road, sat between Wood Green Underground station at the northern end and Turnpike Lane Underground station at its southern end, has no shortage of shopping options with Sainsbury's, Tesco, Morrisons and M&S Food. It boasts popular high street chains such as H&M, Primark, Matalan, Peacocks and New Look; has both Vue and Cineworld multiplexes; wonderful local pubs like The Starting Gate and The Prince; not forgetting countless restaurants, including the chic rooftop hotspot, Tarshish.
The closest Underground Stations are Wood Green and Turnpike Lane. Both are on the Piccadilly line in Zone 3.
Alexandra Palace in Zone 3 has services in to Kings Cross and Moorgate and out to Hertford and Welwyn Garden City. Bowes Park, on the boundary of Zone 3 and 4, serves the Hertford Loop Line branch of the East Coast Main Line, including Kings Cross.
Wood Green is well served by London Buses routes :29, 67, 121, 123 (24-hour operation, weekends), 141, 144, 184, 221, 230, 232, 243 (24-hour operation), 329, W3, W4, and night buses N29 and N91.
